Were the American Revolutionists in the wrong?

In a lengthy reply to me, James P. adopts the argument of historian Sydney Fisher, which he discovered at the site of the royalist blogger Mencius Moldbug, that Britain’s demands on the colonies which set off the American Revolution were reasonable, and that the American patriots overstated the tyrannical character of George III. However, even as he defends the British monarchy from the accusations of the American revolutionists, he also insists that the institution of monarchy is absurd and repugnant. So it’s not entirely established where James is coming from. But clearly he is no Moldbugite.
